Swimming Pool Accidents
Los Angeles Swimming Pool Accident Lawyer
Personal Injury Attorney for Swimming Pool & Drowning Injuries
There are several reasons for why there are so many swimming pool accidents among children. A temporary lapse in supervision is a common factor in most drowning and near drowning cases. A child can drown in a matter of seconds – in the time it takes to answer the phone, and there is often no splashing to warn of trouble.
Children are also more at risk because they can drown in small quantities of water and are at risk in their own homes from wading pools, bathtubs, buckets, diaper pails, and toilets as well as swimming pools, spas, and hot tubs.
Filing an Accident Claim
The owners of private pools are responsible for maintaining a safe environment for children and adults. If you or a loved one has been injured in a private or public pool, you may be able to file a claim for damages against the owner/operator of the pool.
The three main components of a valid claim against the owner or operator of a pool are:
If the owner failed to provide a safe environment, with respect to the use and operation of the swimming pool, which would include proper supervision, warnings, gating, and safety and rescue equipment, the owner or operator of the swimming pool may be negligent. If the injured party suffered damages as a result of a swimming pool owner, or operator’s negligence, they are entitled to be compensated for their damages.

You should also take photographs of the accident scene from different angles, including pictures of any equipment that contributed to the accident or drowning. You should also obtain police reports from the incident and reports from the hospital room. The more information that you can get ahold of, the better.
